Campus Climate Data

One way that Hope College measures the impact of our actions and improvement in campus culture is through survey data collected from staff and faculty members.

101 Best and BrightestCulture, inclusion and diversity data benchmarked to other West Michigan and national organizations

Hope College participates annually in the 101 Best and Brightest program and their survey. This external assessment is administered to a random sample of our faculty and staff members. Results provide a big picture perspective of the institution. Within the survey are scales for culture and diversity & inclusion, benchmarked to other West Michigan and national organizations.
